Marvel Reacts to 'Black Panther' Academy Awards Nominations


Kumail Nanjiani and Tracee Ellis Ross announced this year's Academy Awards nominations bright and early on Tuesday morning, and although many nods seemed like a foregone conclusion - like the domination of Roma, the love for the ladies of The Favourite, the inevitable song nomination for A Star Is Born's "Shallow" - others came as a surprise. Can you name another horror movie that's earned that many Oscar nominations since then? The 1937 original with Janet Gaynor scored 7 nominations, while the 1954 adaptation with Judy Garland and the 1976 remake with Barbara Streisand scored 6 and 4 nominations respectively.

Steve McQueen's film Widows was also shut out of the nominations, while Dolly Parton, whose song Girl In The Movies from Dumplin' was tipped for a nod, was also snubbed.

Bradley Cooper, who did get a nod for Best Actor for his role in the self directed A Star Is Born, did not receive a nomination in the Best Director category.

It did land a nomination for Regina King in the best supporting actress category, best original score and best adapted screenplay.

But there was good news for British stars, with Olivia Colman and Christian Bale following on from their Golden Globes success with nominations in the best actress and best actor categories.

And with "BlacKkKlansman's" positioning in the best picture category, Lee could also win for co-producing the film with Sean McKittrick, Jason Blum, Raymond Mansfield and Jordan Peele.

Whoever the host may or may not turn out to be, the 91st Academy Awards will air on ABC on Sunday, Feb. 24 at 8/7c. "Who's watching that film now?" It didn't happen. And the backlash was so severe that the Academy changed its rules, expanding the number of possible Best Picture nominees from five to ten. Viggo Mortensen ("Green Book") and Cooper ("Star") are also contenders.

Twenty times out of 29, the PGA award victor has gone on to take the best picture Oscar, including "The Shape of Water" a year ago.

Rivals include 21st Century Fox's Bohemian Rhapsody about late Queen singer Freddie Mercury, which has rung up $798 million at global box offices.

For best actress, Glenn Close's momentum is soaring after her twin Globe and Critics' Choice wins for The Wife, in which she plays a woman author whose marriage boils over when her writer husband wins the Nobel Prize.

On Sunday night, CNN also showed video of the moments before the viral video showing Black Israelites taunting the boys. Other students - some in "Make America Great Again" hats and sweatshirts - were chanting and laughing.

Emily Blunt also had been seen as a possible competitor in the best actress race for "Mary Poppins Returns" but did not make the list.

The 25-year-old aspiring preschool teacher was nominated for her first Oscar for playing the domestic worker at the center of Cuarón's "Roma".

Thankfully, the Academy backtracked, and wisely awarded Black Panther the nomination. The overall record in the category belongs to Edith Head with 35 nominations, according to the film academy.
